Geno comes down with stomach flu

Geno Smith was scheduled to spend Friday as the “Principal for the Day” at PS 33 in Queens, but was forced to cancel due to stomach flu (Martin, June 6).

Coloring books, donated by a 16-year-old Long Island student, will still be delivered to the kids.

I'm beginning to come around on Johnny Boy. I didn't like his methodology at 1st now I see hope and change. Sort of

Can you imagine if he did go, and they wrote about him skipping ota's to read books to children..lol, they'll find something negative to write about regardless.

Last year, wasn't there a similar story about Geno signing a football or something and Nelson actually signing it or something, lol, just meaningless stories, They have nothing better to write about.

Well, he did the right thing, don't want to get the kids sick, I hate it when parents send their kids sick to school, get's all the other kids sick, when my kids get sick they stay home.

Are people really bashing Geno for having a stomach flu? Seriously? When does the hating and complaining stop?

If he really has a stomach flu, I'm pretty sure the last thing on his mind is trying to find a replacement.  Although it's a short term affliction, it's nasty.

Pennington would've either shown up, or sent Coles, Cotch, and Martin in his place.


Speaks volumes that none of Geno's teammates were willing to step up.

@Zartan You don't know any details about this situation, but go ahead and make assumptions about him.

@jetlife @Zartan sorry bro, i don't do sick days. Never!! it's for kitty cats and momma boys. 


You commit to something, you see it through, one way or another. 


I'm responding to the post of Geno not showing up, not assuming anything but what was said.

@Zartan Yes, because nothing screams being a REAL man like showing up to work with a contagious illness.  You realize how dumb that sounds?

@Zarton You do know that the stomach flu can be highly contagious right? Maybe interacting with a bunch of kids after even thinking he has it is a bad idea. Think about the NYDN story if Geno would have infected a whole school lol.

@Hanknaples Geno has the luxury of not going, and a person who works doesn't, if he has that luxury, why risk getting kids sick. I don't know of any teachers going to their jobs sick, that's why there's substitute teachers, because the school board doesn't want to get kids sick.

@Hanknaples Who cares about the duration it's contagious? Regardless of how long it takes, it probably makes sense that he didn't go. 


It's not like he's missing practice where he would be around a bunch of grown men. He cancelled a trip to a school, and kids have a weaker immune system than adults. 


If he missed 2 weeks of practice I would be upset, but he cancelled a one day trip to a school. Maybe he took the emetrol and sprite and was still in that 24 hour recovery time frame you brought up.

@Hanknaples It's not that serious. But why risk getting little kids sick? It's just not worth it.

@Hanknaples Yes, if it was a tooth ache, no, he should go, but if you got something that spreads, is it right?

Poor little Joey can't play knock hockey at latchkey thanks to good old number 7. Thank god the rangers are back to give the NYDN something to talk about
